. >> just to break in, one of the biggest swing states, nevada, abc and cnn have called that for president obama. this was not a surprise. the romney people were pessimistic about nevada, but it's just another example of how this very small map, surprisingly small map, is turning blue in state after state. >> right. again, and if as we keep trying to do throughout this night for our viewers on c-span2, folks at politico.com, is put all of this stuff in perspective of the things that we know on the presidential level, every single one of them has broken in the direction of the president. new hampshire, nevada, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. every state that was plausibly up for grabs has gone to barack obama. an important note on that, almost everything we're seeing is breaking the way that public polling suggested it would. there was a big debate over the last month about whether or not media companies cooked the books on polls or whether or not people are just missing something in the electorate. what i've always told people about polls and i think it's proving out true ton
that the that it talked about on cbs, nbc, cnn, or any of the networks. he just announced that he can do an energy tax tomorrow and not have broken his word. an energy tax, wacking the middle class. he could raise income taxes on people a year from now. which is why what he wanted to do is kick out the bush rates for those making less than 250 -- $250,000 a year. this is where you talk about the dual mandate. we are talking about marginal tax rates, higher income people and successful small businesses. that raises $400 billion -- there are other taxes, in addition to the rate increases he wants to include. over a decade. he has $800 billion he plans to raise from high income people. the size of the debt -- if he gets that, in his budget, assuming he gets the tax hike -- he raises $8 trillion in debt over the next decade. having solved the less than 10% of the problem, he then comes back and says, now, who is going to pay the $8 trillion? that is the energy tax. which, of course, the treasury department -- carvin in e-mails several thousand times -- with arbon in their e-mails 7000 times perry are the
of the election. we could have done better. we will do better, the secretary of state said on cnn during pointed questioning from the anchor. but in an exclusive interview the "herald times," scott made no apologies for what led to an incomplete vote, three days after the election. what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works, scott said. i believe in efficiency. i believe every vote has to count. i want to have a good process that people feel good about. back to the phones, talking about president obama's claim that the election gives him a mandate to tax the rich. the next call comes from kim in mayor the a, georgia, making between $50,000 and $100,000 a year. go ahead, kim. caller: hi. i don't think the election gives him a mandate for anything. i also believe that you're not going to be able to really truly affect the situation by taxing the upper -- there's not enough money. you have to tax the middle class. the middle class is the biggest class, and, you know, when obamacare goes through, there's going to be like 20 taxes go through on the middle class. so when people voted fo
will hear from you. we want to ask who you voted for and why and your reaction to the results. cnn a few minutes ago declared a hampshire for the president and its four key electoral votes. both with an eye on the electoral votes. this is the scene from the obama campaign headquarters in chicago. we are also in boston at romney headquarters. jill is on the phone, democrats, warren, pennsylvania. what was a light when he went to the polls today? caller: we vote in a very small town. i saw one of my former students. host: as the look of the results tonight, what do you think? caller: i see president obama all the way. as a teacher, this is fantastic. unions, we very strongly support president obama. host: jasmine from st. augustine, florida, republican line. caller: i voted early. this was my first year that i could actually vote. and i voted for romney. i voted for him because he is all about helping the middle- class and having small businesses. my fiancee and his father owned a small business. the democrats talk about how that are moving forward and i have not seen any forward progressi
't get talked about nbc, cnn or any of the networks. what he just announced as he can do a energy tax tomorrow and not have broken his word and energy tax of course whacking the middle class. he can raise income taxes on people a year from now, which is why what he wanted to do was kick out the bush rates for people less than 250 per year. he can't get -- and this is where you talk about dual mandates. were talking about marginal tax rates on higher income people and successful small businesses. that raises 400 alien. this other taxes in addition to rate increases he wants to include. he talks about the rates. over a decade. so he is $800 billion he plans to raise from higher income people. the size of the dead if he gets that in his budget, assuming he gets the tax hike, he raises a trillion dollars in debt over the next decade. so having solved less than 10% of the problem company then comes back and says that he was going to pay the 8 trillion? .the energy tax, which pours the treasury department has seven times people have been trying to subpoena the information. they don't want t
pennsylvania. caller: their number one. cnn forget it. chris matthews plays the race card every tying democrats are losing. then it is the other guy. benghazi should be number-one. four americans killed. where is obama? he would not want any programs and answer anything. host: let me get your thoughts on this. guest: the president has been in a couple of debates since what happened there. the subject did come up here yet i think it is not correct to say that he has not gone anywhere where the subject has been able to be discussed. we did have nationally- televised debates. the president has been very clear, and that is we need to get to the bottom of what happened, and we will find those responsible and hold them responsible. given the president's record with respect to the leadership of al qaeda and bin laden, i think we can expect him to do exactly what he promised to do, and that is fine the responsible -- find those responsible and held them responsible. did you want to picture it is done correctly and with the correct information. that is what the president is doing, and i think that is th
so i want to learn something, not just be entertained. >> and it's not as exciting as cnn or fox but you get the real story and i like it >> these viewers watch c-span on comcast. c-span created by america's cable companies in 1979 brought to you as a service by your television provider. >> with just five days to go until election day, ann romney called on the people of ohio to vote early for her hubt mitt. she said he will not fail women and the american people. this is a half hour. >> thank you. i am so pleased to be here today. what a lovely group of people. we are into the final days. isn't this exithe? and we're going in the right direction. it's just wonderful. we are so pleased to be here. i've had a lovely opportunity to travel with ann through the months now and through things and i just see in her so many things that will be so lovely in a first lady. we are so lucky to have her, aren't we? [applause] and the reasons that i'm here are not much different than the reasons from before. i care very deeply about my own family, obviously that's first and fore340st in my mind.
watching cnn. host: we are asking people as far as house and senate races, and who'd you plan to vote for? caller: the thing about it was, i would have voted for the person. we have a governor, we also have a woman mayor in tulsa. is a christian man. host: thank you crawl of you have -- who have participated. for coverage on what happens with the president and house and senate races, we invite you to go to c-span.org for more information. especially on election day. and find out more information. we have many come a majority of the key senate debates, house, too. online for you to view there at c-span.org. coming up, there is the same sex ballot initiative on four states this election day. we will speak with fred sainz of the human rights campaign. and we wanted to let you know is ours is a joint project is concerned between book tv and american history, it is a month hilliard, vt. weekend. -- montpelier, vermont. it has a population of about 8000 people. it is the smallest united states state capital. at 12:00 p.m. we are going to focus their book programming. we are touring northeastern
. here is a piece coming to us from cnn. extra day of voting possible in new york. voters may get an extra day to cast ballots if disruptions' prevent and of citizens from showing up at the polls . host: this story, from abc. host: tone -- host: tony, joining us by e-mail, go ahead. caller: your subject is on the confidence of the electoral process. myself, i am very confident in the electoral process. i am a sworn commissioner and i am actually less confident in the media, who buys into the democrat's idea that there is a problem in the electoral process, rather than holding to your journalistic creed of objectivity and holding only to the facts. i have seen the facts. i have worked in the polls here for a long time. there is a lot of concern about the south and you see the media playing it that they are seeing poll watchers in the department of justice sending people to the south, but what i just heard on c-span was like an advertisement for obama. he got to say his closing statement again on time for c- span, which i have always held to be greatly objective until this morning.
was very struck that cnn found its groove with john kean and the message board. if you were looking for any race, anywhere, you could find the information you were looking for. i was struck by margaret hoover , a political columnist who is so beautiful youth is so smart and every time she speaks, you think is she's smart. who are some of the people starting to blow you away or the institutions you thought played a major role? >> i would say going back to my original theory -- sasha eisenberg and his book, the victory lap, he nailed it. he was saying it before anyone else, that this was going to come down to turnout and techniques and so i give him a lot credit. might beraid this controversial, but i think nate silver, since this was the year of the polls, he nailed it. on the political side, having covered ted crews, i'm really impressed, and he's going to be a player. he could be a republican supreme court nominee if not a candidate for president or vice president. >> i don't think many people have heard that much about them. >> he becomes the third former supreme court clerk to be serving
-span. re-airs begin at noon with meet the press, 1:00, abc's this week. fox news sunday. cnn state of the union at 3:00 and face the nation from cbs. listen to them all on c-span radio 91 fm. xm satellite channel 119. listen on your i-phone, blackberry or android. on c-span.org. truman had two big puzzles in his life. first was, this is a man that got in politics having failed in many businesses as a young man. and the only way to get in politics in missouri was to be part of a machine. there were two of them and he looked up with the pender gast machine arguably the most corrupt and often vicious machine. i said how did this happen? how could he work in this machine in local politics? that was the first thing i had to work out. the second of course is what we all know about and that is how did he come to use the atomic bomb? what was behind the decision? what's the story about the atomic bomb before he became president? and then when the decision was on his desk. it's still a controversial story and i wanted to know more about it. >> from his early life through his presidency. we
of the mainstream media, including cnn and the networks have reported, and reporting of the bombing and going to the hospitals, and showing some of the destruction. what i see here in the discourse though is that -- obviously there is more sympathy with israel and congress. more sympathy in the and administration. but the discourse itself is so focused on the simple narrative of what happened yesterday or what is happening today that it does fail to tell the bigger picture, and the benignbigger pe i started with. it is not just about who started shooting. that matters, but it is about an unnatural situation. the palestinians have been under occupation for 45 years. it is not just in gaza, they have been under siege for four years. you can go back and forth about who was responsible, but you cannot say this is a natural. sure, at a is really cannot live if an american would not tolerate a single rocket fired -- but what americans would tolerate being under occupation for just one day let alone 45 years? i think the bottom line is that we have an environment of it is much bigger than the ceasef
dominant that by the time john adams signed, john and cnn's becomes president, he's a democrat. he's completely left the federalist fold. the federalist party is essentially dead. what happened then was the rest of andrew jackson on the democratic arty, much more as we know it today and became for a little while a single party except there were those in the country who are really opposed to jackson and this became the assets of the whig party. it wasn't so much a political party as an anti-jackson party and the whigs came along and henry clay perhaps, if we want to talk about forgotten people from an 18th century, henry clay isn't so much forgotten, but overlooked because he never became president. perhaps the most prominent american at this time he didn't become president. since from the subject of elections and scandal, there is a pamphlet produced when henry clay was running against james polk and said 21 reasons why henry clay should not be elected. reason number two was he spends his days at the gaming tables and his nights at the brothel. so anyone who still thinks it was nic
